Group B of Caribbean Qualifying for the Women's Under-20 has come to an end with Surinam claiming top spot and a place in the next round of qualifying.
Following their 4:1 victory over Dominica in their opening game on 20 September, Surinam played Anguilla on 22 September with Aisa Smit's 44th minute strike giving the Surinamese the lead for most of the game until Shelissa Williams' reply in the 92nd minute earned Anguilla a draw, and a point, for a 1:1 final score.
The other Group B game on 22 September saw Netherlands Antilles and Dominica play out a 0:0 draw.
In the final games of Group B on 24 September, a goal by Nicala Jean-Jacques after 12 minutes was enough to claim victory over Anguilla. Meanwhile, Surinam claimed the Group B crown with a 6:0 victory over Netherlands Antilles. First half goals by Omica Tol (5 minutes) and Aisa Smit (42) gave Surinam a 2:0 lead at half time. A second half hatrick by Rowena Taweroe (50, 63, 74) along with a second strike for Smit (72) left Surinam with seven points on top of Group B.
Surinam will now join Trinidad and Tobago, the winners of Group A, along with the winners of Group C and Group D, in a final quadrangular tournament to take place in Trinidad and Tobago from 12-16 November.
